Dr. Kristina Keating’s research focuses on using near surface geophysics to investigate the top 100 m’s of Earth’s surface. In particular, she is interested in using near-surface geophysics for hydrogeologic, biogeochemical, and cryosphere investigations. Dr. Keating uses standard geophysical methods including seismic refraction and electrical resistivity, but much of her research is focused on a novel geophysical method, nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR). Past and on-going studies in her research group includes field investigations to understand the depth and distribution of permafrost in Svalbard, laboratory studies to improve geophysical estimations of hydraulic conductivity, and computer modeling to improve the interpretation and analysis of geophysical data.

How much did climate change contribute to the damage inflicted by Superstorm Sandy? According to new study by researchers from Climate Central, Rutgers University, and Stevens Institute of Technology, the answer is approximately 13% ($8.1 billion) of the $62.7 billion in losses incurred by New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. Join Dr. Daniel Gilford, Climate Scientist at Climate Central, Inc.; Dr. Robert Kopp, Professor and Director, Rutgers Institute of Earth, Ocean & Atmospheric Sciences; and Mr. Robert Freudenberg, Vice President, Energy & Environment, Regional Plan Association, as they discuss how they arrived at this answer and the relationship between human-caused warming and losses during Superstorm Sandy.
